An international British literary agency.

Established in February 2008 by Isabel Atherton, Creative Authors Limited represents titles with strong commercial potential in fiction, arts and crafts, biography, autobiography, health, business, cookery and children's picture books. Other areas of interest include history, natural history, humour, popular culture, women's fiction and crime. We are also looking for talented, enthusiastic and adaptable illustrators.

About Isabel

Isabel Atherton has had wide exposure to the creative industries. In the past 15 years, she has headed up a marketing department for an international company and worked as a health journalist. Isabel has worked for four top London agencies and she is now an independent agent. Isabel holds a BA (Hons) in English Literature and an MA in Contemporary Approaches to English Studies. Both were studied at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

All authors are individually handled by Isabel Atherton and Creative Authors Ltd prides itself on a personal and highly efficient service. Creative Authors Ltd aims to take first time writers and established authors to a new level of recognition. With all our authors we aim to establish a life-time relationship. However, we are highly selective and only take on new writers whose work we genuinely love.

Creative Authors is a transatlantic agency. We sell directly to the US and UK. Cutting out the need for a subagent in these territories.

“Since being represented by Isabel and Creative Authors, my career has blossomed. She has opened up opportunities in markets I would never have considered and ferreted out great deals for me – including a movie deal! Creative Authors is a great organisation to have behind you.”
